This one took me 20 tries to finally get. It was very frustrating, but I finally got a decent script and finished with I think 60 or 63% (I forget which). Nothing but patience and some luck.

@ spc twinkie: 90+ tries? Dude, you've got serious patience. I felt like snapping the game in half after my 15th try. I hope you get it soon.

I have zero patience. I would have snapped it if it was for the pack of cigs i had on me. I have bad anger issues & ptsd from Iraq. Only bright side to that day was I knocked out impossible mode so i got the 150 points which made me smile

I did it!!! Damn it, I made it but it took a big load of patience, no light in the room (apart for the TV) and total concentration - and of course around a million of tries (a bit exaggerated but it did take a while).

It helps to pause it half way through and let your eyes rest a moment.

This achievement was way too easy. Everytime I encountered this part during my four playthroughs I completed it with over 75% remaining. The only tips I can give is to aim for the big asteroids (as they usually contain more rocks inside) and to never let the cannon overheat. You'll get good enough where you can constantly be firing the ADS Cannon and timing your shots perfectly so it doesn't overheat.

The achievement should've been:

Don't get cocky, kid - 20
Survive the ADS Cannon with over 70% shield strength remaining

I agree, this achievement really sucks! I am lucky to get to 50% when I have 1 minute to go, ive tried every strategy and up to my twentieth attempt I reckon, I don't think this achievement is skill, a lot of it is luck... I'm getting slammed by the fast spinning ones in the center that split into 3 constantly

being a veteran of gaming forums i am no longer surprised when i see the trolls saying how easy something is that others are struggling with. it temporarily makes them feel better about themselves til they remember the reality around them. this was a moderate challenge that calls for your full attention. i supppose there are a few that run into a easy sequence early and do accomplish it very quickly. to all those posters who said it was easy but actualy struggled with it i wish you well and hope you re examine your selves. it took me 20 -25 trys. by no means was it easy.

well, i FINALLY got this cheevo after about 35 tries. just stay in the middle and try to shoot as many as you can before they really get coming at you in full force spreading out. I turned my volume down so i did not panic when i DID NOT hear the guy saying "just a little longer"

Impossible.

Turning up the brightness doesn't seem to help.

The big asteroids seem to come into view later than the normal ones - If they're bigger I should be able to see them from futher away!

If you struggle to hit one asteroid you then have 4 or 5 virtually on top of you by the time you've hit it meaning you're pretty much screwed.

After over an hour spent on this tonight I honestly can't see how I'm gonna be able to do it.




Edit: Typical - gave it one more try after I posted and got it straight away lol.

this one can be infuriatingly tricky. just keep repeating it until you get lucky with your shots, and get a good script for the asteroids. i was lucky enough to get one with all the asteroids bunched up. also make sure not to overheat the gun, and remember that some asteroids do more damage than others, so make them a priority. hope this helps.

It wasn't so hard. It's been a while since I played this game but I think I did it on my second try.

The same for me. I turned up the brightness and got it tonight. Total tries was probably 12-15 or so. I also passed with 51%

Is it true that this achievement is easier on impossible than on easy mode? I read this on some other forums.


Edit: Ok, nevermind. Just got it on my own after > 1 hour. I got 49% twice and in the end I got the achievement with 55% shield strength remaining. Thanks everyone for the tips!

Finally got this achievement after 40+ attempts. This was doubly difficult as I'm left handed. In the end I was in a trance state concentrating solely on the asteroids at the centre and not even taking notice of my shield strength. I even had the volume turned down to avoid further distraction. Achievement popped and I was surprised I still had a shield strength of 63%.

I would say that although the pattern of the asteroids is random you do become familiar with the points where the fast and big asteroids pop out. Take these out as soon as possible as they cause the most damage.

Another 1000g done and dusted.

I'm really sad that I can't complete Dead Space because of this achievements

I have several difficulties to aim using the cannon and the left/right trigger to shoot.
I don't know why, but I really suck at this, I reach 48% in the middle of the mini-game!

So sad, because the impossible walkthrough seems to be really easy compared to this.

Got it!

This ones a bitch but just make sure you save just before so you can come back too it and not get too frustrated. I found using one trigger for different sides best and stay calm, there's nothing worst than getting near the end and getting hit by a million asteroids because you're frantically shooting lol.

This keeps kicking my ass. I struggle to even finish the ****ing section, let alone with >50%. I've been practising and repeating but even still this kicks my ass.

Think I might just give up on it. I'm not doing impossible until I have this (I'd really hate for this to be the only achievement I didn't have).

This segment is absolutely retarded. Three attempts and I can't even survive the bullshit barrages the game throws the moment it opens up, and toward the tail end of this section. Almost puts me off the whole damn game. Not going anywhere near this achievement. For those who have it, I tip my hat to you!

For everyone having problems with this one, I was also having a lot of trouble. But i just got it with 81 left on the health. The trick i found was to completely ignore the stuff flying in at the top, most of the time they don't hit at all. Just focus on the stuff coming directly at you.

I have Dead Space since day one but I 100% it just today because of this annoying achievement.
I just hate this kind of mini-game but it's not difficult at all.

For everyone that have some problem with this, I suggest to not give up.
I'm really horrible in shooter and I have no aiming skill, so, if I finally got it...
...you can get it too!

Now I have 1000/1000 this very good game!

I also got this on my second playthrough, the maxxed out one not epic tier one. The first time I tried I must have quit after about 10 tries second time through I got it after my 4th try!

My advice don't give up and don't lose your cool!
